About the author (2006)

Charlotte Hill and William Wallace, the compilers of this anthology, are London-based freelance writers and editors keen to promote the cause of good, life-enhancing erotica. Their desire is that this collection should be enjoyed as widely as possible, and as much by women as by men. Their selections have been made with care to ensure that no-one should be offended. After all, they say, sex is far too important to be taken seriously.
